Sharing inspiring military and veteran news stories is a great way to get us all in the Christmas spirit and remind us how important it is to give back to our men and women in uniform. We've got two stories here to share. We hope you will enjoy them and hope you will remember to thank a military service member and veteran or extend a helping hand to a military family this holiday season.
And remember, if you are still looking for worthy cause to support and a way to give back to our brave military men and women, the Healing Heroes Network is a great place to start. You can even wrap up your last-minute Christmas shopping by donating to enter our Harleys Giveaway and stuffing someone's stocking with a few tickets entering them in our giveaway. Remember, 100% of proceeds support injured veterans through the Healing Heroes Network.
This first story comes out of Oklahoma where the The Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association held their 2nd Annual Christmas Rally. The rally gave combat bikers the chance to bring necessities to veterans living in the Lawton Fort Sill Veterans center and other centers across the state. It also offered an opportunity for the two groups to share stories and build a bond.
Both the bikers and veterans gain something out of the experience. It gives them a chance to share stories and talk to someone who understands the issues other veterans face. As Chuck Stephens from the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association explained, "We do for them. We get stuff back from them as well. You know it's not material things it's spending time with your family because they are truly our family."
30 military families along with members of the Atlanta Braves baseball team and organization spent a fun day together bowling. This is the 5th year of The Atlanta Braves Military Basebowl Holiday Bash.
The day gives military families a chance to have fun and allows their children to bowl with some of their favorite baseball players. U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Veronica Williams said, “It’s an honor to be here with my son, watching him have so much fun and really enjoying this moment.”
The day, however, is not all fun and games. The event also raises money for military and veteran organizations. This year, the Atlanta Braves presented a check for $27,000 that would be distributed to 6 different military groups.Other Articles
